ABOUT

My journey in music began when I was a young boy, my mom had sent my sister and I to piano lessons with Mrs Clark when I was 6 years old, but I really wanted to play ball with my friends so she gave me a guitar and I started learning to play from a neighborhood friend whose father played guitar in the Famous Ink Spots. Later I began to sing harmonies with my boys on the streets and hallways of Brooklyn, New York.

Influences

I developed my musical tastes and interests, listening to The Temptation, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers, The OJays, Stevie Wonder, The Delfonics, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Jive Five, The Drifters, Clyde McPhatter, The Iceman, Jerry Butler, Lionel Richie and the Commodores, and Curtis Mayfield. So I have a strong background in R&B, but I also love the funk of James Brown, Slave, Ohio Players. I also love the Hip Hop genre. My Tracks are a mix of Old School, Reggae, Latin and Hip Hop influences and my take on it all.
